Beard scored 22 points, and added nine rebounds and seven assists as No. 1 Duke routed No. 2 Tennessee 76-55 in the 2002 Jimmy V Classic.

4 p.m. | Duke at North Carolina (Jan. 20, 2003)

Another double-double for Beard – 26 points and 13 rebounds against rival North Carolina in a 78-67 overtime win over the eighth-ranked Tar Heels.

The Legend of Alana Beard

Additionally, ACCN will air The Legend of Alana Beard at 11:30 a.m. leading into the five-game marathon. Kelsey Riggs will host the half-hour program that will feature interviews with Beard, her former Blue Devils teammates Monique Currie and Iciss Tillis, former Duke head coach Gail Goestenkors, and ESPN basketball personality Holly Rowe.

Beard’s Collegiate Dominance

Considered one of the best all-time players in women’s basketball history, Beard earned National Player of the Year honors her final two seasons at Duke and is one of eight three-time Associated Press First Team All-Americans. Beard helped Duke to a 126-14 record in four seasons, four straight appearances in the NCAA tournament, including back-to-back trips to the Final Four (2002 and 2003), and four consecutive ACC regular season and tournament titles. Beard was the first player in league history to be named Player of the Year three times, and earned All-ACC First Team honors each of her four seasons at Duke – making her the first player in ACC women’s basketball history to accomplish the feat. Beard, the second overall pick in the 2004 WNBA Draft still holds 11 Duke career records, including the program’s all-time scoring mark with 2,687 points.

ACC Legends

The ACC Legends series on ACCN highlights the careers of former ACC athletes across all sports. ACC Legends: Vince Carter was the first former ACC player featured in the series. Additional ACC Legends programming marathons will be announced at a later date.
